Report: EA's Danger Close Studio Potentially Facing Closure
The Developers behind Medal of Honor and Medal of Honor: Warfighter may be next on EA's chopping block.
Following disappointing financial results and the resignation of CEO John Riccitiello, EA has sought to “sharpen their focus” and restructure the company. Rumors have now surfaced that Danger Close Games (formerly EA LA) may be facing closure and that a number of its key developers have already departed.
It is no secret that the studio was facing an increasingly uncertain future due to the transfer of Command & Conquer to BioWare's Victory Games, the lackluster reception to 2012's Medal of Honor: Warfighter, and EA's subsequent announcement that they would be placing an indefinite hold on its recently rebooted franchise.
Though EA has yet to provide any official comment on the status of the studio, we expect to have conclusive information on its fate once EA has finished its restructuring program.
